i'm the only person in my family born down here.
(and the only one over 5'7, i wonder if there's a coincidence)

so i have to go see the ex g.f. today.
i knew it was coming but i'd been putting it off.
I scheduled my session for right when we get done so I can take the stress and emotions out on the iron.

i actually have a question for vol.
would it be better to try to lose fat for about a month or is this about what i should be doing?

Alright so i don't know if it's because i worked out in the evening or because i just got done seeing the ex but i had a good workout.
Flat Bench Dumb Bell Presses 5 sets of 6 starting with 75-was extremely light and i was just throwing it up so i did 12 reps, then went up to 85's with no rest and pumped out 6 reps. did two more sets at 85's then dropped down to 75's for the last 6.
• Incline Dumbbell Presses 4 sets of 8 with 55's for the first two sets and 45's for the second two.
• Dips 3 sets of max-i actually did bench dips to put more focus on my tri's and did 3 set's of 20
• Tricep Presses 4 sets of 8-with 85's
I was feeling good. I'm not as strong as i used to be but i finally felt today like i was activating some muscle fibers and it was addicting, so i went and did 2 sets of tri extensions with 120 lbs for 12 reps, did sets of floor wipers (just learned about em today ) and did decline crunches with a 45 for 2 sets of 25
Today felt great. I finally felt like I was doing something. I felt the fibers in my chest start burning and I couldn't help but smile. I really had a strong desire to do a set of squats, but decided as soon as i got off work tomorrow I would rush to the gym and get my squats in.

I'm going with "the ex" theory. Was it a good thing? Or an upsetting thing? I've had some of my best dead lift days from being angry with a girl.

it was more depressing than anything. she's the only person i've let myself get close to since my freshman year in highschool.
I'm back to being alone, which is very much the way i like it.
03-21-2009, 01:03 AM
Oh, I forgot i did my delts today as well.
Side Raises- 4 sets of 8 with 25's
front raises 4 sets of 8 with 25's
bent over side raises (trying to hit the rear delt) 4 sets of 8 with 25's

Solid stuff right there natty t- i'm in the same kind of the thing right now w/ my girl. except w/ the breaking up on valentines day thing. Sorry to here that, but I'm sure you'll be alright. You probably got a few lined up just waiting to get w/ you huh? Just keep doing what you got to do and everything will work out how it's suppose to.

To put things in a tough love perspective, better to have had this happen now, where the cut is clean, then 5 years into a marriage where property, financies and potential children are intertwined. That's more like a slow & messy tearing away, then a clean cut.
Stay up, bro, and try to stay away from destructive behavior. I've ingested my fair share of reality anaesthetics, and those were some wasted years.

honestly dude, there was a hot chick lifting weights last night in the weight room and if i didn't spend so much time making fun of guys for hitting on girls while they work out i would have asked her for a spot...
could that have been some of my motivation

well i did legs today. (i've not really been following my laid out plan =/ )
squats-2 sets of 8 with 225 regular and 2 sets of 8 bench squats.
RDL's- 2 sets of 14 with 135
lying leg curls- 4 sets of 8 with 85
bench step ups- 3 sets of 10 on each leg with 35's in hand.
did abs then headed home.

I felt good today, started out strong then went flat near the end. I've not got my stamina built up yet. =/

I love em. When I'm stationary on the bench I envision myself in the three point and when i fire off the snap i fire off the bench.

--stole this idea from texaslifter. this is the song that i always start out with when i'm squatting.
okay did back today. (i've not been following my outline at all )
Dead Lifts-5 sets of 5 with the following weights in descending order. 285, 275, 265, 245, 235. it's a 10 pound improvement from last week. I've been getting these intense lower back pumps.
Close Grip T-bar rows- 4 sets of 10 with 90 pounds + whatever the sled weighs
Wide Grip T-Bar Rows-2 Sets of 15 with 45 pounds + whatever the sled weighs
Straight Bar Curls- 3 sets of 10 with 95 lbs. I decided i'm going to do curls every other back day.
I didn't get in untill 8:30 and they kicked me out at 9 so that's all I got done today. I guess I should mention every rep of every set I do is a "negative"...I didn't really know it had a name but anyway i try to explode the weight up and as it's going down i try to count to atleast 5 before it's down...it's what our football coaches made us do...is this okay vol??
